Got two new trailers for you today, both coming from “The House of the Mouse.” The first one is the theatrical trailer for Disney and Robert Zemeckis’s re-imagining of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, and the other is an exclusive clip for the Toy Story 3D Double Feature, which kicks off its two-week limited engagement this weekend.
Fridays deserve a little touch of magic and there’s nobody who $pecializes in the magic touch better than Disney.
A CHRISTMAS CAROL
First up is the trailer for A Christmas Carol, which stars Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge (and the three ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future). The first trailer pretty much showcased Carrey being Carrey, thankfully this second trailer also shows us (as if we needed reminding), what the actual film is about.
Visually speaking Zemeckis has done a pretty good job bringing Dickens’ story to life. Of course there are the usual “made for 3D” gimmicks shots (Scrooge running away from the phantom carriage being the most obvious), but the motion-capture CGI looks pretty fantastic and the colors have this shiny Christmas-type tone to them that my eyes are excited to feast on in 3D. Back during Comic Con we learned that Zemeckis might be mixing his unique brand of creepy in with all the fun, and I’m curious to see if that’s true.
TOY STORY 3D DOUBLE FEATURE
We also have a final trailer/clip for the Toy Story 1&2 3D Double Feature event, which kicks off today and will continue for the next two weeks (check you local theater for showtimes). This latest video features the informative TV Spot we saw before, which lets us know details of the double feature screening (you get a bathroom break), as well as offering an exclusive clip from Toy Story 2 3D.
Check it out:
I’m really digging that they’re releasing these Toy Story film in 3D. It’s like getting two great presents before Christmas. Last double feature I sat through was Grindhouse, and with this event, I at least know my time is going to be well $pent, and enjoyed.
As stated the Toy Story 3D Double Feature starts today and will continue for two weeks. Check your local theaters.
A Christmas Carol will be in theaters on November 6, 2009.
